The game of soccer originated in medieval times on the British Isles, referred to as “mob football.”
It was a lot more dangerous then, with fewer rules and no limit to how many players could be on the field at one time.
Today, soccer is one of the most popular sports in the U.S. In fact, nearly a third of Americans consider themselves soccer fans.
The term “soccer mom” was first used in the 1990s. It typically refers to a woman who dedicates a considerable amount of her time to her children’s activities, often driving them to and from sports events.
Soccer moms can make memorable characters both in fiction and in real life.

How to Choose the Best Soccer Mom Name
Even if you’ve pinned down a few favorite names, settling on just one perfect option can be a challenge.
Here, you’ll find helpful ideas for making the final choice or even coming up with your own list of names.
- Search your memories for great examples. Make a list of the first names of all the great moms you’ve known, past and present — your best friend’s mom, your aunt, a favorite teacher who was a mother, or anyone else that comes to mind. Now underline the ones you feel fit the definition of a soccer mom. One or more of these names may be just the right fit.
- Think of moms from your favorite books, movies, or TV shows. Popular culture can provide great inspiration for soccer mom-worthy names. Whether or not the plot involves soccer, jot down the names of mom characters you remember, such as Rebecca from “This Is Us” or Regina George’s “cool mom” June in “Mean Girls.” You could make a list of options by yourself or sit down with some friends for a fun brainstorming session.
- Compare your favorites with the character’s last name. If you already have a surname in mind, saying your top picks out loud combined with the last name can help narrow down the choices. One may even stick out above the rest, making the choice easy.
